Had a great opening day at the Danby exhibition and despite the dull cold weather we had a great turnout which kept us talking to friends old and new all afternoon. Graham started the ball rolling by selling one of his pieces of sculpture within the first 30 minutes and we followed with some good sales as the afternoon progressed. One of Janet’s winter scenes is now on its way to Cameroon where it is currently 40 degrees centigrade!
A big thank you to Sally for providing us with a lovely white painted room which complemented our stark black and white images perfectly. Thanks also to all the people who made the trip to Danby making the meet the artist afternoon such a good event. Here’s looking forwards to meeting many more people on the weekends we’re at the exhibition, so why not drop us a line if you are thinking of going and we’ll let you know if we can make it.
Ps. The Woolley Sheep café has blueberry cheese cake to die for!

The Moors Centre at Danby occupies an idyllic location, nestled in the north of the National Park where it makes a great day-out destination for walking and exploring.
The changeable weather we having been having this summer is proving very challenging as it is so hard deciding when the weather is going to be good and when it’s going to close in.
The weekend before last saw us at Danby for the “Your Place Meet the artist” event at the Moors centre, so we took the opportunity to try and capture some shots of Danby Dale, but the weather refused to cooperate, so we moved on to the coast at Saltburn for the sunset. Unfortunately the cloud closed in at the coast, so we came home disappointed.
This weekend saw us back at Danby replacing pictures that had sold, so we decided to have another go at photographing Danby Dale. As we left the Moors centre the skies opened and the rain came pouring down! We sat for an hour and half waiting to see if it would stop, knowing that if the sky did clear the conditions would be great. The sun did duly come out and the warm evening light was glorious on the dales, although very windy, so we spent the next hour and a half capturing Danby dale and Rigg in this glorious light.I thought that I knew all the roads in the Esk Valley but Janet managed to take me on one I don’t think I had ever been on before (top of Rosedale head to Danby via Danby Castle and Ainthorpe) It was a great find, with lots of potential for landscape photography.
